Project Overview

Through the initiative of the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, GGGI provides the Government of Bahrain with the required technical and advisory support in developing Bahrain’s National Adaptation Program (NAP), aiming at enhancing the adaptive capacity to cope with climate change risks. As part of the intended overarching NAP efforts in Bahrain, GGGI will develop a National Adaptation Investment Plan (NAIP), with an adaptation project pipeline at its core, addressing the most pressing climate change adaptation needs, and considering other planning elements including but not limited to comprehensive climate finance and investment strategy, and implementation arrangements.


Through the National Adaptation Investment Plan (NAIP) process, Bahrain will increase its climate action readiness, through identifying short- and long-term priority options on climate change adaptation based on available data on current and future climate change impacts. The existing in-country risk assessment studies will form the basis of identifying and prioritizing the adaptation options targeting the most critical sectors. Bahrain’s National Communication identifies the following key areas as the most vulnerable ones: (1) coastal zones, (2) water resources, (3) human health, and (4) biodiversity.
